What is the case about?
This is a putative class action case. Plaintiff was employed as an electrician by Ardent Companies, Inc. on oil platforms off the California coast.

The Plaintiff seeks damages, penalties, and restitution, as well as interest, attorneys’ fees, and costs on behalf of himself and all other putative class members.

The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California as Case No. 2:18-CV-02763-GW. The case is assigned to the Honorable George H. Wu.
